Hyundai Sonata may not Have a Future Beyond 2025

Sooner or later, Hyundai Sonata was going to be replaced by an EV

  • The current-generation sedan isn’t doing as well as the automaker had hoped.

  • The car’s design has prompted a full redesign instead of the usual facelift.

The current 8th generation Hyundai Sonata was launched for the 2020. In typical Hyundai fashion, designers opted to all but completely reinvent the once-popular midsize sedan. This time, it could be that they went a little too far which might be a reason why the Sonata may not have a future beyond 2025.

Plans for Hyundai Sonata Facelift Scrapped in Favour of a Full Redesign

Last August, rumours were circulating about a planned-for-2022 facelift that was going to be scrapped in favour of a complete redesign. While that’s not yet taken place, it might be because a facelift will soon occur as the Sonata won’t live on beyond 2025.

Car and Driver’s report specifies that the “Sonata remains and will continue to be an important part of Hyundai’s product lineup. Any rumors on its future are pure speculation.” Even so, within the lineup, the midsize Sonata fights the Tucson and Santa Fe for more or less the same floor space however it has a serious flaw: It’s not an SUV. Sure, there are still sedan buyers out there, but their numbers are dwindling.

As Hyundai also moves closer to electrifying parts of its lineup, an all-electric Ioniq 6 has a better chance at a future than the Sonata.
